Did you know you can transform your Clover payment device into an all-in-one POS System by simply choosing a software plan that fits your business needs? Clover provides you with the hardware and software to run your business and, as a Fiserv company, provides the ability to process credit and debit card payments seamlessly.


Clover, an all-in-one System

At first glance, the handheld Clover Flex and countertop Clover Mini may simply look like payment terminals, but with the right software plan they can be transformed into a full point-of-sale (POS) system, creating a complete solution for you to take payments and manage every part of your business, from staffing to invoicing. 

Clover software plans were created to help you streamline your business operations and are tailored to meet your unique business needs. And, no matter the software plan you choose, all Clover users have access to the Clover Dashboard, where you can view and manage all your  business’ information from virtually anywhere, in real-time.  All you need is an internet connection.  The Clover Dashboard is an effective way to keep your sales, reporting, employees’ performance, inventory, Clover apps, and business goals – all organized in one central location. You can also use the Dashboard to set up recurring payments, take card-not-present payments using our Virtual Terminal, or issue Invoices and request payments from clients.

At Clover, we’re always thinking about the features that would be most valuable for you and your customers so we’re evolving our hardware and software to provide you with a solid foundation for growth.

Clover makes it easy for you to do what you need, all from one Clover system.
